Dykstra Struck by Sheriff's Deputies While in Custody

Former baseball player is currently serving prison time for auto theft, among other crimes.

Former Mets player and Encino resident Lenny Dykstra was struck by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies in April after he was taken into custody for auto theft and bankruptcy fraud, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Lenny Dykstra, Encino resident former player for the New York Mets, was sentenced this week to an additional 6 and a half months in prison.

"Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said deputies 'used force to restrain Dykstra' when he was taken to an undisclosed hospital in Monterey Park," according to the Times report. It also stated:

"Dykstra became agitated and assaulted a med-tech and a nurse," Whitmore said. "Deputies then used force to restrain Dykstra."

*Look at him now. It's funny..I interviewed at his magazine, advertising company he was starting back in '08, or '09 here in CA. His people were all bragging about Lenny and his private jets and huge homes and yadda, yadda. They were all bullsh*t and wasted my time. Now look at him! Needless to say, I'm wealthy now and better than ever while he sits in jail. So glad I never worked for this guy!
